SGM E93 / CF Roof Wrap / CF Trunk Lip / 1st One Ever?

So about a week ago I had some work done on our new-to-us E93. We had the windshield tinted to 35%, we had 20% tint added to the 37% tint already on there (making it about 7%). We also had a trunk lip installed, and wrapped the roof/lip in dry carbon fiber. I then installed the new CNT Racing Race Series exhaust system, which by the way, sounds incredible!

From all the research I've done, I believe this is the first E93 to have the roof wrapped in CF.



















Enjoy!

I think the wrap now makes the e93 look like an e92 as it breaks apart the eyes from focusing on the breaks in the roof. Thanks for the compliments guys!

It's 3M Di-Noc, pretty much best stuff out there. In the sun it looks absolutely crazy, it's got a satin sheen to it, can actually see some reflection in it, here's a better glimpse of how it looks in the sun:

How can you see anything driving at night?! Lol..

Awesome ride though, the roof looks great and I love the black license plates, looks so much better than Jersey's yellow plates!

Used to it now, in AZ limo tint is an absolute must. Windshield tint makes driving in the sun much more manageable. I have 35 windshield and 5 on windows on all vehicles I own.

2013 BMW M3  [4.67]
ROFL 3M Di-Noc != "dry carbon fiber"

It would be better if the roof was wrapped in shiny vinyl instead of flat. No offense but your car looks sort of like it has a landau roof..

I live the satin look of the di-noc vinyl, it goes great with the new trunk lip and the interior dry carbon trim.

Haha well in the pictures I snapped in my driveway, it was about 6:30 so the sun was just about fully set, so you can't really see the crazy sheen it has.

First thing my wife said when we picked it up was how crazy shiny it was, almost gloss looking. I'll try to snap better pics soon showing it in its full glory.

The m3 is more my wife's car, and the m5 is my creation

I like the e60 =)
